Forum: etree Subject: md5 fails, but passes on hard drive?

Hello,

I have scoured the FAQ's and forums here and haven't been able to find the answer I seek. I'm hoping somebody might be able to help me here.

I uploaded a show to etree's audio archive (binary upload), and it's md5 checksum verification failed. The thing is, it passes verification no problem when doubleclicking the same md5 icon on my hard drive of the show I uploaded... No files are missing. The email notification also doesn't show any files missing. It only fails when I try and upload it to etree's audio archive server via FTP.

Any of y'all have an idea of what is happening here and/or what the fix is? I have successfully uploaded shows in the past and didn't have this problem.

Thanks in advance, peace!

Jon

I took a look at it on the server and saw nothing wrong - the MD5 did not reference that file in it and manually checking the show revealed no failing files.

I clicked the "mark resolved" link to submit it for another MD5 check and it looks like it passed the second time around.

Must have been a shortlived bug that cuased that.

When the audio-uploads machines had to be rebooted a couple of days ago, something got temporarily glitched up, and a few Open-Source Audio files reported errors that weren't actually true (like broken file XML data) - maybe this file got mixed up in the reboot too.

That must have been it, cause I made no changes after my above plea for help, and it was fixed when I woke up this morning. I have since uploaded another show in the same manner and it appears to have gone through okay.

Thanks for your help, peace, Jon

it seems like whatever it is, you figured out, because the show is now waiting for curator approval, and I just approved it and it will be moved to the public download servers soon.

It looks like the md5 itself is failing - is there any extraneous text in it that the server might be choking on? Sometimes I accidentally have a line in the md5 for the .txt file.
